Be sure to REGISTER and PAY before this deadline to receive the published rate. If we do not receive the full payment in our office by the respective deadlines, your registration will be cancelled. Once registration is cancelled, you will need to re-register at the rates in effect at that time as indicated on the registration form. There will be no exceptions to this payment policy.

Please note: The VIRTUAL Conference will offer access to the live General Sessions and a concentrated offering of live sessions hosted during the Conference dates. The sessions offered virtually will be determined based on what is received during our Call for Proposals. There will be significantly less sessions offered virtually when compared to our in-person conference offerings.

By registering for the in-person conference, you will gain full access to the virtual conference as well.

*If you are registering as a full-time graduate or undergraduate student, you will be required to upload a letter from your advisor, registrar, or dean as proof of full-time enrollment  when you select that registration category. Those employed full-time and taking college courses are ineligible.

If you are registering as a Chief Academic Officer, please contact Jennie Duval at to verify whether you qualify for a fee waiver before selecting that registration category.

CAO fee waivers are non-transferrable, and CAO must be accompanied by three or more full fee-paying employees (students and preconference-only participants do not qualify) from the same institution.
